Monitoring Aquatic Vegetation with Remote Sensing

Start Date:
July 12, 2022
End Date:
July 19, 2022
Description:
This training will combine basic information on the remote sensing of aquatic vegetation, spectrometry of aquatic/coastal vegetation, and a demonstration of the NASA-funded Floating Forests citizen science tool. This training will combine basic information on the remote sensing of AVs, spectrometry of aquatic/coastal vegetation, and a demonstration of the NASA-funded Floating Forests citizen science tool.
Targeted Audience:
This webinar series is intended for local, regional, state, federal, and non-governmental organizations involved in land and coastal ecosystems management. Applied scientists and GIS professionals interested in learning how to assess the presence of aquatic vegetation independently.
Expected Outcomes:
By the end of this training attendees will be able to: -Distinguish some types of submerged and floating aquatic flora -Summarize the major features of AV spectral signatures -Recognize the primary satellite sensors used for studying AV -Become familiarized with a citizen science (Floating Forests) tool for classifying kelp forests in the west coast of the United States -Discover remotely-sensed and in situ tools to study the presence of seaweed in the Atlantic/Caribbean including the Sargassum Watch System (SaWS)
